We recently stayed here for one night following a late night flight into Colombo. The room was comfortable and clean, the staff were helpful. Overall a good experience. If you're looking for accommodation on a reasonable budget, I can safely recommend this venue.

I was recommended to stay at Ocean View Tourist Guest House from my previous host in Kandy and it's a very nice place indeed. Very conveniently located along the busy streets (with a very nice restaurant just next door - Sea Joy, I think), the only downside is that they do not serve food for lunch/ dinner. But overall, the... More

We stayed for one night at the end of our Sri Lanka vacation and it was one of the best places we stayed. The room was very clean, there was hot water and best if all an actual shower stall! We would stay there again we enjoyed it so much!

The rooms are immaculately clean and well attended. Good mosquito nets, effective ceiling fans and /or air conditioning.The staff are extremely helpful and so friendly. They go out of their... More

Negomo is for most travellers a place to stay 1 day at arrival while planning the visit throw the island or before leaving due to the close distance to the airport. The beach is average but there areplenty of good restaurants and guests houses of all kinds. I planned to stay 2 weeks and I was lucky to find this... More

Nice and cozy, really beautiful. Would always reccomend it! It is really clean, the service is great, it's peaceful and I had a really great night sleep there. Then you have some great shakes and you really feel at home.
